About

Live Cycling Manager is a cycling manager game that mixes the dynamics of a classic resource management game with and online game experience, accompanied with key-event actions in stunning 3D environments. The game has dozens of settings and attributes to manage, this will deliver realism and a difficulty point that will make the delights of the genre fans, but will be perfect to hook people new to this kind of games.

As videogame lovers and cycling fans too, we felt that there was a void around this sport in the videogame offer, so we had the idea of creating a game to fill that gap. With this idea in mind, we concluded that the best game genre would be the one in which we would be able to manage every aspect of our team, so we finally decided for a resource management game, but we needed something that would make it shine, so we made it in real-time and online.

  • Real-time Online races with event actions in 3D.
  • More than 70 races
  • Take total control over your team.
  • Customize the look of your team, Maillot, colors...
  • Manage your pro riders and train your sub-23 teams.
  • Use your scouts to look for junior cyclists.
  • Analize and compare cyclists attributes.
  • Manage your staff team (trainers, medics...).
  • Personal training sessions to improve attributes.
  • Group trainings all over the world.
  • Cyclist auctions in real-time, fight with other managers for the star-riders
  • Manage the merchandising of your club
  • Select and develop the materials for your races
  • Sign contracts with sponsors to get the money you need
  • Negotiate and book the races you will attend to
  • Manage the finances of the club
  • Bring your club to the top!

 live. Live is the keyword of the game, it gives the name and has two meanings. In one hand you will be able to enjoy competing against thousand of other manager online, and in the other hand, the races themselves will be in real-time, so if there is a word that defines the game, it would be live.

The game has got a complete menu system with different sections, here we will show to you some of them and will explain how they will work.

Enjoy competing in more than 70 online live races against other managers. You will find races with the most known points worlwide like Milan, Roubaix, Mortirolo, Alpe d'Huez, Tourmalet and more very well know places. There will be stage races, major stage races and well known classic races.

The real races usually are hours long, but our races will be approximately 20 to 30 minutes long, this way we will choose between being a mere spectator of the race, watching how the riders advance and reading the headlines for the main events, checking the cyclists of each group and their rider cards, or being an active part of the race giving orders to each of our cyclists.

In an easy way, we will give orders to each of the riders in our team anytime, and make them attack, maintain their position, run at their effort or take relays. If we make it in the right moments, we will get great results that we'll see in stunning 3D scenes.

... and see the action!
... and see the action!

 In addition to our professional team, we will have other two teams with us, the Under 23 team, young riders that we will train too and when they are brave enough, bring to the races too, and the younger Juniors, these will be hired by our scout team, and if we bring em with us, they will improve their skill and perhaps in a future become our champions.

 An important part of Live Cycling Manager happens out of the roads, the training will be a part in which we will have to focus, since it will be the main way to make our riders improve their attributes.

improve your skills
improve your skills

You will be able to choose and train your cyclist individually using the different routines, this way you will focus on improving the skills you want. Of course, as long as your men are fit enough and you have points for it.

train around the world
train around the world

Another way to train your team, will be the team-stages, this kind of training will let you send your whole team around the world to train in many different environments. Those trainings will be much more efficient, but they will cost you more, and you will have to plan them with caution, because they might coincide with the races you want to run.

 A cycling team isn't only made of cyclists, there is a full team of people behind the roads that makes it all possible. In the game we will have to manage and use our staff too!

Trainers

They will be the ones that will boost our training sessions, their skills in the different routines will make some training easier or more effective.

Medics

Cyclists can suffer injuries too, and our medics will be responsible of takeing care for our team.

Scouts

The Scouts will search for young promises for our team, they will put all of their efforts searching the best junior cyclists for us,.

Public Relations

All of the business part of the team will pass from the hand of our PR, they will talk with the sponsors and will intercede with the race organizators for us.

Physiotherapist

The moral is an important thing for our riders, so a visit to the physios will be a good idea when they are down.

Inside the Club menu, you will find a special section in which you will be able to customize the clothes of your team, choose the color combination you want and one of the designs for tha maillot and your culotte. These colors will appear in the 3D scenes too!

choose your colors

Other of the most important sections in the game, will be the sponsors, without them we won't get the income we need to improve our riders or pay for the best materials and stuff to attend to the races.

get sponsors
get sponsors

We will need to deal with them, and maintain our relations in good condition to make them continue sponsoring us. A good way to do so, will be offering our different advertising spots, another, filling the goals each sponsor will have. Some will want victories, others certain races, etc... Chose the best sponsors for you, and your finances won't bother you.

Xagu Studios

Xagu Studios is a young studio formed in 2015, we started creating some educational games for mobile platforms, and now we decided to go further and develop a more personal project in which we started thinking about even before the creation of the studio, from this idea Live Cycling Manager was born. We are an experienced team in multiplatform developments, but we wanted something more for this game, so we contacted with Eri Studio for the 3D content of the game, and this way we created the partnership for this project.

Eri Studio

Eri Studio is a little indie game studio with really clear ideas: Rescue those games from the 90’s which moved gamer’s heart and bring them to our days, using new graphics and design. We are going to create huge 3D scenarios. But now we are using all we know about videogames to create, with Xagu Studios, Live Cycling Manager, a game which looks really amazing for us.

eristudio.com

 We decided to choose Kickstarter not only for we need money for the project, we choose to try this kind of funding because we ant to involve people in the development, we need and want your feedback, your comments and your critiques also. If you like what you see, or you don't, we want you to tell us. We want you as a part of our team.

Risks and challenges

We do know that every project is a challenge for its creators, and we are no exception, but we are confident about it. We have spent months designing, prototyping the different parts of the game, and even if we are at an early to middle stage of the development, we've got the ideas very clear.

There can be always technical dificulties that can delay the project, but we've got all our efforts on this game.

Our team is motivated to offer a quality experience and a game that not only you will enjoy, we are making this project for we want to enjoy it too!
